The Panasonic Lumix DMC-S1K 12.1MP Digital Camera features an easy-to-press shutter button, the DMC-S1 also has a round-form that fits comfortably in the palm of the hand and a body that's designed for easy use. A special color-matched front lens ring also makes the DMC-S1 look like a digital accessory. It is a compact and lightweight "power stone" - you can just leave it to the camera to get beautiful photo, movies and fun for sure.
The DMC-S1 is equipped with a 4x optical zoom lens (35mm camera equivalent: 28-112mm). The Extra Optical Zoom function uses the center part of the CCD to extend this 4x zoom ratio to powerful 7.8x zoom (35mm camera equivalent: 218mm) at a resolution of 3-megapixel or less. Adding the Extra Optical Zoom to the 4x digital zoom extends the total zooming power to a maximum of 31.2x. The DMC-S1 can record motion images in high-definition (1,280 x 720 pixels at 30 fps in Motion JPEG format). The pixel mixed readout method enables bright motion-image recording even in low-light settings. The DMC-S1 can also record standard motion images in VGA (640 x 480 pixels at 30 fps) and QVGA (320 x 240 pixels at 30 fps).
The DMC-S1's large 2.7-inch LCD features high 230,000-dot resolution LCD. The big screen reflects fine details, making it easy to check the focus before shooting. It also serves as a small photo and video viewer, allowing the user and friends to enjoy viewing the still and motion images together.

like the compact 110 battery charger. like the size, fits in my pocket easily. picture quality seems great. not to complicated. good price. so far so good.
Good choice as a gift for the casual photographer. Be sure to also buy extra SD card as internal memory is limited to just a few pictures.
I want to buy this camera, but do not have enough money in my pocket.. But will surely recommend it to my friends! Thank you!
